I bet there’s not one person that doesn’t stop and stare when a Corvette drives by. Did you know there is a National Corvette Museum and I visited it last month, on my trip to Bowling Green, Kentucky. If you’re in the area, this is the perfect place to stop by for a visit.
This museum will appeal to kids and adults alike and was the perfect place to spend the day.
According to the National Corvette Museum, “The Corvette has been produced for seven generations over the past 63 years.
Known throughout the world as “America’s Sports Car,” the Corvette embodies the concept of innovation. On June 30, 1953, the first Corvette came off the assembly line.”
If you remember, they made the news in 2014 when a 40 foot sinkhole opened up and swallowed EIGHT vintage Corvettes.
Check out my video tour:
CORVETTE CAVE-IN: THE SKYDOME SINKHOLE EXPERIENCE
A semi-permanent exhibit to tell the story of the February 2014 sinkhole in the Museum’s Skydome which swallowed eight Corvettes. Learn more here.

There are also special events, check their website to find out details. There’s a restaurant on site called the Corvette Cafe, if you’re hungry.
They also have a kid area (you’ll see it in my video), that was a lot of fun.
